Who would've thought that a Bolognese dish can handle a twist of Asian fusion? Well, one of our Ibuencers, Kinah \u2014umikitchen88 on Instagram\u2014surely did! This variation of a Bolognese meal may even be slightly healthier compared to a pasta-based dish. In comparison to the average pasta, egg noodles consist of slightly lower carbs, calories, proteins, and essential amino acids. The main difference between paste and egg noodles is really in the egg content of the noodles. The latter has a much higher consistency of eggs and if you manage to grab quality egg noodles, they will have been enriched with minerals and vitamins, resulting in an increased nutritional value, typically like below: \tCalories: 221 \tProtein: 7 grams \tFat: 3 grams \tCarbs: 40 grams \tFiber: 2 grams \tSelenium: 70% of the Daily Value (DV) \tThiamine: 39% of the DV \tFolate: 55% of the DV \tManganese: 22% of the DV \tNiacin: 21% of the DV \tCopper: 17% of the DV \tRiboflavin: 17% of the DV \tIron: 13% of the DV \tZinc: 10% of the DV As you can see, a typical serving of egg noodles will have more than a sufficient amount of nutrition for daily consumption! Selenium is a special type of protein our body requires in small amounts. They're vital in cell production, aids in cell damage as well as one's overall immunity function by inhibiting the growth of cancer cells or the poisonous effects of heavy metals. Since the human body is unable to produce selenium, we ought to source it from the right type of meal, and egg noodles is definitely a top consideration.
